Congrat's! Written and driving? or just road test? What was your road test like if you did one? Seems alot of places do it all differently.

i took the written test and got my permit quite a while ago. i can't remember how long ago it was. today i took the road test. it was actually really easy. just did some zig-zagin' on the cones and some acceleratin' up through the gears and downshiftin' to where the trooper was standin'. really simple and easy...

Let me know when you are going to run the tail, I might meet up with you. Plan on going and running six gap this weekend if the weather cooperates.

To all of you who haven't... The Dragon is a must... however DON'T STOP THERE. There are way too many roads around the dragon which are also must rides. Also if you're into camping, I don't don't mean back country camping, there's a place southeast of the The Dragon called Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge that's smack dab in the middle of it all. The following links are the rides we did last month and last year. They are all good but the first and last are my favorites and both include The Dragon... In case it's not obvious, Ironhorse MC Lodge was our base with each ride starting from there. Also you'll note that all of these rides are all less than 170 miles and while you may think that's a short ride, they're not. All rides are through mountain roads w/ lots of scenic views, you would be remiss to not stop and enjoy them.

PM me for more info or advice...
